This is the first time these three great sonatas have been recorded not only on a piano of Clementi’s time but also on a piano from his own workshop. John Khouri, whose previous fortepiano recordings of music by Weber and Beethoven on Music & Arts have earned critical acclaim, specializes in the London Pianoforte School of composers: Clementi, Cramer, Dussek, Woelfl and Field as well as German and Austrian masters.
